Barrell Craft Spirits (BCS) has unveiled its new 16 Year Gray Label Seagrass rye whiskey.
This follows the release in 2021 of Barrell Seagrass, a blend of American and Canadian rye whiskeys finished in three casks. That brand has since trended with consumers, landing on multiple “best of” whiskey lists for 2021.
BCS Gray Label Seagrass is 100% Canadian rye whisky aged for 16 years, sourced and finished in Martinique rhum, madeira and apricot brandy barrels. It’s bottled at 130.82 proof.
“We knew we had something special with the launch of Barrell Seagrass last year and decided to take that same method of global sourcing and blending, both in whiskey and finishing materials, and apply it to a very special set of barrels,” says BCS Founder Joe Beatrice. “BCS Gray Label Seagrass is an expression rooted in the profile of Barrell Seagrass, but at a level only achievable with older and higher proof whiskies.”
BCS Gray Label Seagrass is now available at retailers within the brand’s current 48 U.S. markets, and online via the BCS website at barrellbourbon.com.
The suggested retail price for a 750-ml. bottle of BCS Gray Label Seagrass is $249.99.
This comes after the recent launches of Barrell Gold Label and New Year 2022, and Barrell Craft Spirits 2021 Gray Label Bourbon.
